Vuzh Music

Internet Archive mirror for the netlabel housed at vuzhmusic.com

Vuzh Music's present mission is divided into three:

1. To serve as a hub for projects by C. Reider, new and old. This is served both by releasing new music, and linking to releases on other netlabels on the Vuzh Music website, as well as linking to other internet-based projects I've undertaken.
2. To re-release select work from the cassette underground, originally released on tape during the 80s & 90s.
3. To release new music made by friends and colleagues, those whose music I have admired and invited to release on this label.


More on Vuzh Music, including demo policy can be found at the about page on the label.

Originally released on cassette in 1995 on AudioFile Tapes. Remastered for net release in 2011 on Vuzh Music. The Unseelie Court was a one-off collaboration, Fall was the only release. Those participating in the tracks were C. Reider, Terry Burke (from Histatic Charge) and C. Hodges (Auzel) In 1992 C. Reider recorded some lo-fi recordings using various non-musical household items and cheap instruments and sent them off to Terry Burke (a.k.a. Dr. Terrence 13) of Histatic Charge, who now does...

A few minutes before, during and after the total solar eclipse, recorded at Camp Wyoba on Casper Mountain, outside of Casper, Wyoming.  We had an entire mountain meadow almost entirely to ourselves, most of the people in camp were gathered together in a larger meadow about a quarter mile away, but it's mostly their sound you can hear.  I don't need to point out when totality begins and ends in the recording, because it's really obvious. Present in our group were Carrie Hodges, her brother...

Dystimbria was a project intended to find common ground or cross-pollination between ambient music and noise music.  Each track was required to incorporate a sample from the previous track, making the whole collection an interconnected continuum, genetically related. The word "dystimbria" was coined by neurologist and author Oliver Sacks, meaning a loss of the ability to discern timbres. DYS001 - DYS006 Dystimbria 2011 features works by: C.

Originally released in 1996 on cassette via AudioFile Tapes. Remixed / remastered in 2009 for net release on Vuzh Music. Artist statement: The subtitle of this record was "a Diary of Tentative Ambient Drafts". While I don't think that much of the music presented here is ambient in the accepted modern sense, and although I wouldn't call this music ambient today, it is clearly a music of patience. Its whole point was to slowly explore a sound space that to me sounded quiet and calming....

Originally released on cassette in 1998. Remastered for net release. In 1998, I started reworking some old 4-track recordings that had been collecting dust, having gone unreleased through my home-run recording label Vuzh Music. These recordings are a collection of material from several projects that were either never completed, temporarily shelved, or simply abandoned for whatever reason. Some tracks were oddballs that didn't fit in thematically or musically with anything I had planned to...

This was the first release from Crook'd Finger, originally recorded in '99 and released in miniscule quantities on cassette and CDr in 2000 as a split with FZZY PMPR's "fdgy btns". Crook'd Finger was an alter-ego of C. Reider facts: Crook'd Finger cannot dance, and knows not a damned thing about technology, nor electricity. Crook'd Finger lived in an apartment. "X-Ray Eyes" is a cover version. "Yoras" could conceivably be called "THRTNTH" (some sound...

     C. Reider has a long history of messing with the structure of speaking voices in his recordings, going back to his very first recordings, with tape cut-ups such as "sex" from the late eighties, "To Ship the Thumb" from the Unseelie Court's "fall" from 1992, the weird voice edit on the collaboration with the Implicit Order "Opposing Theories of E.R.O.I." and others.      On "Aughtet," this interest in screwed up voices is explored...

Originally released in limited quantities on cassette in 2000, later on CDr. Remastered in 2011. The first part (side one of the cassette, tracks 1 through 4 on the digital release) was a remix of sources from percussionist Harlan Lyman. The second part (side two of the cassette, tracks 6 through 9 on the digital release) was a remix of the German group D.Rhythm:O, now more popularly known as Dronaement. Track 5 was a mix of both artists together. Additional instrumentation: guitar, crash...

Originally released on cassette in 1997. Remastered for net-release. Mixed from prepared tapes in 1997, man-hours was essentially a rumination on work and play, free time and controlled time, conceived rather joyfully during a period of employment frustration. Made up of two pieces, filling the two sides of the original tape release, one side mixed tapes of musical sketches / band jams into a blurry, bubbling sound concoction... like wandering through a maze of underground tunnels trying to...

    A full-length postal collaboration between two long-time underground ambient artists. C. Reider from the United States and Germany's Tarkatak mesh their ideas with a fine result. Flowing, melodic drone-ambient eventually transforming into subdued industrial-noise and lurking strangeness.       C. Reider & Lutz Pruditsch of Tarkatak traded raw sound sources and independently worked on these sources in 2000, each recording about a half hour of material.  The recording was...

  Collaborations with Lutz Pruditsch of Tarkatak seem to have an extremely long gestation period. When we first collaborated on The Druser Pricid, the recording was completed in 2000, but not released until 2003. The same is true of Azure Bell, Midnight Well. Lutz and I exchanged sources long enough ago that I completely have forgotten when it was. The sources sat for a long time, unused. Then music began to take form, then the unfinished mixes sat for a few more years. I determined myself to...

   "the Long Defeat" was an unrehearsed improvisation in a humblingly empty, resonant space...       This improvisation took place on December 13, 2003, for it I utilized electric guitar with effects, frame drum and radio. Each of these tracks is an unedited part of that improvisation. The full recording lasted exactly one hour. A few minutes of non-musical silence were edited out. Aside from EQ and compression, no other post-processing was done.       In 2004, this...

These are tracks I made while suffering through a psychotic depression.   These recordings represent what I thought sounded right while I was waiting out the bio-chemical storm. They are queezy, non-melodic drone-loops with glitching electronic buzzes, murmers and crackles at the foreground. very zoned-out, yet difficult experimental, electronic-abstract sound works intersecting noise and ambient. Unsettling atmospheres, surreal electronic crackle, flitting shadows of voices. A difficult suite...
